Like most artists my inspiration comes from others and from a very early age I possessed a need to create. Although mainly self-taught, there have been people and challenges throughout my life that have not only inspired, but given me the tools and education necessary to master the challenges of watercolors. Like my watercolor collages, I have many layers.

I grew up in northwest Indiana where I studied with artist Neil Kienitz. It was his instruction and introduction to watercolors that gave me the focus and encouragement to continue my passion. I have always enjoyed the challenge of watercolors more than other mediums, but just as I was beginning to master this technique, I became a mother, and my priorities shifted.

You never know where life will take you, and the journey is usually far from our control. My life became a whirlwind, and I eventually drifted to the east coast, where in an effort to raise my family, I abandoned my passion. It did, however, linger, and my children grew older, and through the years I found myself desperate to create again. I decided to take a few courses at the local art museum and a workshop with Gerald Brommer who taught me the technique of watercolor collage. His instruction was exactly what I needed to ignite the spark again. Since then I have created not only watercolor collages, but have expanded my repertoire with miniature watercolor portraits on small pieces of ivory; an historic technique that has always fascinated me.

My ultimate goal is to infuse emotion into my work; to be able to convey in my work the gentle spirit of a person, a pet, their unique character, or the feeling a place leaves with you. I hope you find my work to be as meaningful as it has been to me; the driving force behind my entire life.
